4 Benefits of Upgrading Your Furnace

The decision to install a new furnace can be a tough one. A new furnace is a major expense for your home, so you want to make sure it’s the right choice for your family.

If you’re noticing any of the below issues, it may be time to install a new furnace:

  • Rising energy bills.
  • Unusual sounds.
  • Cold spots or uneven heating.
  • Constant repairs.
  • Signs of rust or cracking.

If you believe it’s time for a furnace upgrade, you can look forward to these 4 benefits!

#1 More Efficient & Improved Airflow

A new furnace will likely have a lower BTU (British Thermal Unit) rating than an older model. A BTU rating refers to how much energy a furnace uses to heat your home; therefore, a lower rating means that your new furnace is more efficient at distributing air throughout the home.

Improved airflow allows your furnace to keep your home at a constant temperature, so you won’t experience heat fluctuations throughout the day.

BONUS: Improved airflow means that your furnace will be more efficient at filtering out impurities from the air. Your family will breathe easier with a new furnace installation.

#2 Affordable Electricity Bills

More efficiency means less energy will be used for your furnace to do its job. That means you will need to spend less on your energy bill!

Over time, homeowners who install a new high-efficiency furnace can see their energy bills reduce by up to 35% (BC Hydro). That could mean thousands of dollars in your pocket over just a few years!

#3 Increased Reliability

As a homeowner in Canada, you know that you need your furnace to be reliable throughout the winter. A new furnace will give you peace of mind that your family will stay warm all year long.

BONUS: You’ll also save money on repair costs! A new furnace will operate more smoothly and require less maintenance. Plus, you can rely on the furnace’s warranty for at least a couple of years to make sure your furnace is operating smoothly.

#4 Eco-Friendly Options

Many older furnace models weren’t designed with the environment in mind. However, newer models are constantly refined to be better for the environment!

By using less energy, you’ll reduce your carbon footprint and have a more environmentally conscious home. To be even more environmentally friendly, we recommend installing a smart thermostat so you can optimize your furnace’s settings and reduce your energy usage.
